Amelia Island

Located just off the coast of northeast Florida, Amelia Island is a barrier island rich in colorful history and breath-taking natural beauty. Thirteen miles long and two miles wide, the northern and southern tips of the island are park preserves, which make up nearly 10 percent of the entire island. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal waterway, strong-currented Nassau Sound and one of the East’s largest and deepest inlets – Cumberland Sound – Amelia Island is edged with natural Appalachian quartz beaches and framed by sand dunes as high as 40 feet. From upscale resorts and charming bed and breakfast inns, to comfortable hotels at value rates, Amelia Island offers accommodations for everyone. With more than 20 places to stay and more than 2,500 rooms, visitors are able to choose properties located directly along the Atlantic Ocean, within walking distance of the historic district and anywhere in between.

Forget the everyday getaway; Come make memories on Amelia Island.
